Calvin Bassey wanted at Brighton

Nigeria and Ajax defender Calvin Bassey is wanted at English Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion FC this summer.

Bassey was a target for Brighton prior to his transfer from Scottish side Glasgow Rangers to Dutch Eredivise club Ajax Amsterdam last summer.

The Amex Stadium outfit will return for the Nigerian defender this summer and a move will be of mutual interest for both Bassey and Brighton in the present circumstances.

For Brighton, their inability to sign defender Levi Cowill from Chelsea FC has left a vacuum in their defence line with manager Roberto De Zerbi reportedly convinced the versatile Nigerian is best suited for the club.

According to multiple sources, Ajax will be happy to part with Calvin Bassey for a £18.7 million transfer fee, after what was a difficult first season in Holland for the Super Eagle.

Brighton and Hove Albion will be playing in the Europa League next season a competition 23-year-old Bassey starred significantly as Rangers marched to the 2021/2022 final.

Contact has been made with the players representatives and personal terms will not be an obstacle by the time the Premier League club submits an official bid to Ajax.
